    It's just a patch, sure, but it's disruptive, and JARVIS isn't sure he likes it.

    Summary

    With luck, they might survive their first date…

     

    Dear Reader, this letter is to inform you of Cupid’s curse, which will fall upon you if you don’t pass this email on to twelve friends within twelve hours.

     

    Mycroft Holmes didn’t believe in the curse and now he hasn’t had a second date in three years… because all his first dates end in disaster.

    Gregory Lestrade isn’t sure if the curse is real or not, but if dating Mycroft means occasionally getting assaulted with shrimp linguini or nearly electrocuted, it’s worth the risk. Armed with lucky charms and optimism, Greg will have to battle Russian mail-order brides, fire alarms and flying knives if he’s going to win the boy.

    (Adapted from “Cursed By Cupid” by Wendy Sparrow)

    Summary

    This is an AU in which the elemental countries are modern nation-states locked into an uneasy regional standoff. Sakura, Naruto, and Sasuke (and others!) meet at a summer camp as children, and later end up working both to create a more lasting peace and to move their country away from a clan-based oligarchy toward a true democracy. Or something like that. I was just trying to write a 'camp counselors at a lake' thing, but the sociopolitical background took me hostage and ran away with my writing mojo. *wry*

    Oh my god, so adorable! And as always I love, love, love intricate world-building. Modern-yet-mystical AU ftw!

    Summary

    No one suspects Arthur. He's too practical, too organized, too sensible to believe in the supernatural.

    Based on the kink meme prompt: Arthur's real name is Cole Sear.

    I love this story. It's a beautiful, slightly melancholy blend of fandoms that adds hidden depths to both. You know a fic's hit perfection when you have a hard time remembering it's not actually canon. :)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    As the name suggests, a modern AU of Maleficent. But wonderfully, not a mundane AU, nor a masquerade - no, we have an open urban magic setting! Instead of kingdoms and war it's corporations and legislation. Instead of curses and an indebted Changed raven servant it's wards-and-blessings-for-sale Inc. and a raven-shifter PA. There is still anti-magic bigotry. Stefan is still a betraying, ambitious, douchecanoe high muckety-muck. Maleficent is still a uniquely strong magician and powerful woman fighting anti-magic sentiment. Maleficent still lays - well, not a curse. Technically. (But man, some blessings can be interestingly worded). Diaval is still totally into her (that counts as canon, right? It's so obvious!). In all, utterly amazing.
